    I like it but kind of looks more like an Elle France cover

    I actually like this.

    Although VJ has proven their strength in outdoor cover, I feel like they’re at their strongest when they produce studio covers.

    It´s a nice cover but it´s not eye catching like their studio ones imo.

    I immediately clicked on this thread after I saw Mona's name. She's such a beautiful person.

    I actually like this cover. It's different from their typical studio cover shoots, but it doesn't take away their aesthetic.

    I don’t get the hype of Giampaolo. That’s one boring celeb photographer with no taste.

    It's actually a really striking cover consider who is the photographer is. I like it, Mona look like a regal cottage goddess and that Dior cruise collection photograph like a dream.

    It's a win for me, Mona just does it effortlessly - so beautiful. However, I must admit I'm quite disappointed that it's shot by Sgura instead of Luigi & Iango.

    My eyes light up when I saw Mona's name ever. She's so beautiful and her cover works. Beautiful model, amazing cover.

    I really love this, the photo, the styling, and of course Mona. There is really only one thing I don't particularly like with the styling, but its such a nitpick.

    Amazing cover and a great score for Vogue Japan! I bet this is just the first of Mona's Vogue covers for the upcoming year, now that she is 18 she's bound to end up on Vogue Italia. Who knows, maybe even Vogue UK!

    For someone who is so spectacular in campaign and on the runway, Mona's first OG cover is disappointing.

    Mona has 2 stories— and unfortunately, they’re both shot by Giampaolo. At least with the coverstory, he gets to impersonate Bruce (and sneak in a classic Bruce-type male model to boot) which lends some sweet, sunny, candid shots of Mona loosening up and beaming and the male model hamming it up. And she’s quite adorable when she’s all smiles and sunshine. Maybe it’s because her features are so clearly young, but she’s very much a commercial model through and through. There’s no smoulder nor allure with her: Just a squeaky clean, pretty young woman. It’s all so Seventeen magazine.

    Giampaolo shoots her for the 2nd story with all the detachment of someone shooting for a department-store catalogue— which means Mona’s doing her best Sears poses. And Anna is such a terrible stylist. Why she has remained employed all these years is such a wonder to me. Sadly, her plague is all over these 2 stories.

    (And there’s a story by Juergen. Not sure if it’s a reprint, but nowadays, everything he shoots resembles a reprint.

    284pg.)
